Summer Challenge: Day 2 - Chelsea Flower Show

The Chelsea Flower show is one of the items on my bucket list.  If you have ever seen pictures of the show you would understand why!  It's like wonderland! 
Example:

                            

So you can see why I was excited about this challenge! I didn't want to do the same old flower design, so once again I did some googling! This is the picture that instantly grabbed my attention:


Now the steps of how I interpretted the picture.

I wanted a neutral base, so I applied 2 coats of BL Nail Foundation.


Second, I added my grass using Sinful Colors Nail Art in Jungle and Color Club Stripper in Mint.



Third, using a makeup sponge and OPI Funky Dunkey I added the purple flowers.


Fourth, I added the reddish/purple flowers using a sponge and China Glaze Ahoy.


Fifth, for the yellow flower, sponging and Zoya Pippa.


Sixth, I thought the flowers lack something, so I added some black lines using Sinful Colors Nail Art in Time Off.  Would you call these pistels?


Lastly, I topped off the design with NYC.  I didn't wait long enough and got some streaking. :(




I really like how my interpretation turned out and its not the typically flower mani.

Don't forget to checkout what these ladies did!
